Dive Computer: Cressi Leonardo
Hiya guys,

I currently have a Cressi Leonardo with which I'm very happy with. But I'm looking to change it for a "more advanced" dive computer.

What I'm looking for is this (if it exists):
  • Air integration (not with receivers but directly through the hose).
  • Not very restrictive. I hear Mares are very conservative.
  • User changeable batteries.
  • Two gas mix selection.
  • Altitude selection. My current one only allows 900 meters and below, or 900 and above, afaik.
  • Sea water or Fresh water mode. Cressi Leonardo is calibrated for sea water, and can't change it.
  • Nitrox.
  • Multiple temperature readings (In other words, temperature at every read).
  • MacDive integration.

After a long search over the net I came across this, Oceanic Pro Plus 3, which I've seen is supported by MacDive, but as I haven't tested it, I want to know if anyone has and if it'll fulfill all or most of my "must haves".

The Atomic Aquatics Cobalt 2 should cover all of that, with some minor caveats. Ie, no changeable battery, but it's USB rechargeable (which is even better IMO).

Thanks Nick, I'll give it a look.

What do you think of the Oceanic one I've mentioned, as I can get it very easy here in Spain. Atomics it's more difficult and will have to search over the net/ebay.

I haven't used one myself unfortunately, so I can't really comment on it. Sorry!

Hello guys, I re-up this topic to see if you could help me out, because my Cressi Leonardo is doing funny things and what I currently need it's actually a bit different than a year two years ago:
  • Air integration (don't mind the system used, transmitter or directly from hose)
  • Heart Rate reading
  • User changeable battery or USB rechargable
  • Multiple gases selection (or at least two)
  • Altitude selection (or computer autoselect)
  • Sea Water or Fresh Water
  • And of course, MacDive integration

The only ones that I think fulfills all of these items but the last one (MacDive Integration) are the ScubaPro ones:

Any ideas? I rather not switch to some other vendor's Dive Software.

What about the Perdix AI?

It doesn’t have heart rate but it has everything else.

Hello, thanks for the tip.

The reallity is that I actually like the Heart Rate monitor feature, if I only wanted the Air integration and multiple gases I know I can get a lot of Suunto, Oceanic, and so on ... It's a pity you don't support ScubaPro (I know they won't let you access to their computers).

I'll think about it.

Cheers.

Perdix AI is the best advice you can get
